attempt #3

KAAP art festival for children, fort Groenekan, Utrecht. http://tweetakt-kaap.nl/ 3 years ago I participated(analogue soundlab 2) in KAAP, a quite unique exhibition held at a old fortress on the outskirts of Utrecht. It’s main goal is to provide an interesting way to involve a younger…

Robot relations

EX-bunker, 10-2014, old WWII bunker in Wilhelmina Park, Utrecht http://exbunker.nl/ Nederlands: Techniek ontwikkeld zich op een razend tempo, nu de stofzuigerrobot, straks een robotische huishoudhulp en wie weet waar we over 20 jaar zijn. Is Robotica iets om te omarmen of om bang voor te…

the mini Organ Dronor

Finally it has arrived! My first professionally produced PCB. The power to drone, right in your hand! The mini Organ Dronor is a smaller version of the “Organ Dronor” analog drone system I’ve been developing over the last 2 years. Unlike most simple drone machines…

Cockroach robotics

02-2013 HKU school for arts, Utrecht. In my experiments with robotics I’ve been searching for ways to make the behaviour less predictable and more organic. As always Im trying to achieve this with the least amount of parts possible. I tried several ways of generating…

Control

Robotic installation as part of the HKU The theme of the festival was “no more westerns”, referring to the shift in visual cultures from western to eastern. With this installation, subtitled “the bottomfeeder doesn’t care who is on top” I tried to visualise my own…

Pinky the brainless robot experiment

It’s been nearly a year since my last experiments with robotics and it was time to do some more. Meet pinky, a fully analog light following robot. This is the first in a series of small “stupid” robots Im building for a bigger project.  …

Missa Lux (Lightdance)

12-12-2011@ HKU school for arts, Utrecht I’ve always wanted to combine dance and light with my work in electronics and music. So I made a light sensitive wireless suit wich translates the light intensity from various parts on the body into raw midi data. Big…

some early experiments

19-06-2010 First test with shift registers to generate “random” patterns. 01-07-2010 Showing off the LED’s. 06-08-2010 The first attempt at getting visuals from my lunetta. Im using the output of the lunetta to drive a circuit wich generates a very basic composite video signal. 12-08-2010…

the Insect Orchestra

Like most of my projects this one started as a little scribble on a piece of paper about a year ago. I have always been fascinated by the seemingly chaotic patterns everywhere in nature. The way ants organize themselves, the behavior of swarming locusts, even…

The Organ Dronor prototype

This project has been a long time coming, but the first prototype is finally done. Still some minor changes to be made, mainly around the filter and a CV input for the filter. 2 triangle oscillators with fine tune knob for those tearing slow drones….

Midi lunchbox

This project has been in the making for nearly a year now and I finally got around to finishing it. I used an arduino mega and a off the shelf midi to usb cable and hacked them together. The final controller has 8 midi CC…

Lunetta Robotics experiments 1 & 2

My first few simple steps into the world of robotics. In the first experiment I wanted to use my knowledge of logic ic’s to generate irratic movement. It is controlled by light and various logic signals. <iframe width=”420″ height=”315″ src=”http://www.youtube.com/embed/UjQ2ikWHVpU” frameborder=”0″ allowfullscreen></iframe>   In the…

werkschouw 15-12-2010: the light sequencer

I’ve been working a lot with homemade electronics in various projects this semester and for the werkschouw(half term evaluation) I made this light sequencer installation. It consists of a screen divided into 8 seperate sections, each equiped with a light sensor housed in a pyramid….

Circuitboards

Since I started exploring the world of electronics I have been fascinated by the beauty of the printed circuitboard. It’s probably the most common form of electronics and a modern household can have hundreds of PCB’s all silently making our world work. They were never…
